Local SEO & Listings Management
Nowhere is location more important than in search, where it’s estimated that nearly half of all searches have local intent – even more so for mobile device users, 82% of whom include “near me” in their query.
At MERGE, we help brands improve their location exposure organically using digital knowledge management (DKI) tactics like Listings Management and Local Search Engine Optimization (Local SEO). Sure, you can invest in location-based Paid Media strategies to generate local brand visibility or brick-and-mortar foot traffic and sales – but who wants to pay for something you could get for free?
Local SEO and listings management often represents a substantial revenue opportunity for your brand, whether you’re a retailer or a restaurant brand. If you’ve made an investment in online location management tools, too often we find those are implemented onsite without a proactive approach for leveraging the technology. Between managing citations, updating location landing pages, and creating content with local context, it’s hard to find time for that important work.
Luckily, our team of local SEO professionals can help you manage and improve your local search footprint. Our depth of experience – including with technologies like Yext, Rio SEO, and Moz Local – means we can supply un-biased, strategic recommendations on what’s right for your program and service those tools for optimal results.
